Located in Ypsilanti just off I-94 between Detroit Metro Airport and Ann Arbor is Eagle Crest Golf Club, operated by Eastern Michigan University and home to the college golf teams. Eagle Crest opened in 1987 and is a daily-fee course with a Marriott hotel located onsite. The elevated driving range and practice area overlooks Ford Lake and the course layout features several holes that play along its shores. The highlight is the signature par-5 16th hole that features a shallow, peninsula green on the lake. In 2012, EMU embarked on a 20-year master plan to the golf course that will elevate the stature of the course among NCAA host courses. Enhancements include tree management and more views of the lake, rebuilt greens and rerouted cart paths.

Great track and visuals!

Layout was impressive combining trees, water and hills. Greens were in great shape but too many knucklehead golfers don’t fix their ball marks. Want to play this again as I would have done things differently on many of the doglegs featured.

Also had lunch in the grill room overlooking the practice area. Nice choices and well prepared food.

Very enjoyable experience overall.

Amazing course - incredibly slow

Eagle Crest is a beautiful course that is typically reasonably priced for how nice the course is. The design is challenging and fun. It’s always in decent shape.

This is the second time I’ve gone to play on a weeknight, and it will be my last for a while. It took 3 hours to play nine holes (last time was close to 3 hours). We were waiting between every single hole. Eagle Crest is too nice of a course to be ruined by poor pace of play.

They either need to have rangers on the course monitoring play or space out tee times. The status quo makes for a bad golf experience which is hard given how nice the course is.

Love this track!

Gorgeous course with tons of water, tight fairways? Well placed bunkers, and greens that are true and fast. Had to go around again because I don’t get to play here as much as I would like.

Highly recommend this course. I’ll be back for sure

Pretty good!

Challenging but fair course with scenic views and varied approaches. Two minor complaints were the pace of play due to the course hosting a PGA junior tournament while STILL letting normal golfers go out every 10 minutes and not pairing us up in fours (= a backup by Hole #2), along with the grass not being mowed very recently causing some unnecessarily tough shots when in the rough. Just minor things though and we did enjoy our round.
